In the next couple of months, 7th and 8th grade students will begin learning about high school graduation requirements in Keller ISD. This will take place in your student’s advisory class. 8th grade students will be building a 4-year that will help guide them in high school. The goal is to help them discover their strengths and begin narrowing their focus as they begin to select courses for high school.
